The Automotive Green Tires market was valued at USD 86.28 billion in 2021 and is expected to reach USD 164.83 billion by 2027, registering a CAGR of 11.02% during the forecast period.

The COVID-19 pandemic hindered the growth of automotive green tires owing to declined vehicle production and the shutdown of manufacturing units due to lockdowns and restrictions imposed by the government. Further, supply chain disruptions and trade restrictions created chaos in the market as it made tire assembly and its supply to major OEMs more complex than expected. However, as manufacturers started taking necessary measures to mitigate such future risks and as restrictions eased, the demand in the market started picking up pace and is expected to continue over the forecast period.

Over the medium term, customer preferences for environmentally friendly mobility options, as well as strict restrictions, are increasing the demand for tires that are both energy-efficient and environmentally safe. The raw material utilized is the first critical component of an eco-friendly tire. Companies are attempting to replace rubber with a synthetic composite, which frequently includes silica. Silica helps replace rubber in the treads and reduces road friction.

Silica aids in the reduction of rolling resistance or the energy lost as the tire deforms against the road. Energy conservation improves fuel efficiency. Rolling resistance accounts for 10-15% of fuel consumption in passenger cars but can account for up to 30% of fuel consumption in heavy trucks. While low rolling resistance tires may only cut this by 2 to 3%, fuel savings still assist the environment.

Rising electric car sales have been cited as a key element driving the demand for green tires. These green tires provide 20% less low rolling resistance, increasing total vehicle efficiency. This has been recognized as a primary solution for electric car manufacturers who are experiencing issues with limited range and green tires. They may see longer-range electric vehicles as a result of the improved efficiency supplied by them.

Key Market Trends

OEM Sales Channel Likely to Hold Major Market Share During the Forecast Period

Remarkable changes have been made to other aspects of the auto industry as a result of the rise of electric automobiles. The focus on creating components for electric automobiles other than the electric powertrains had shifted due to the requirement for greater efficiency.

In April 2022, Mercedes-Benz announced its development partner Bridgestone Corporation for manufacturing tires for the Mercedes-Benz Vision EQXX, which is a futuristic electric vehicle. Under this partnership, Bridgestone is expected to work collaboratively with the OEM to design highly efficient custom Turanza Eco tires for Mercedes EVs to help increase the driving range to 1,000 km. In addition, Bridgestone has combined lightweight ENLITEN technology in the tire to enable low rolling resistance and reduce tire weight by 20%.
In December 2021, the new ElectricDrive GT was introduced by the Goodyear Tire & Rubber Company, which uses Goodyear’s SoundComfort Technology and serves as an integrated sound barrier to assist minimize road noise and is optimized for electric vehicles. Goodyear claims that it is compatible with the Tesla Model Y and Model 3, two of the most well-liked electric vehicles in the United States.

Moreover, the increasing trend for SUV culture globally owing to its comfort in longer during journeys has attracted consumer preferences. Thus, tire manufacturers are also aiming to target the SUV segment to offer OEM batter and reliable tire solutions. For instance,

In February 2022, Yokohama announced that it would supply its Geolandar X-CV tires to OEM Toyota’s latest Lexus LX SUV. The tires are designed as highway terrain tires for high-performance SUVs to deliver maneuverability and high-speed performance characteristics. In addition, the tires would add high-performance standards, including lower rolling resistance in Toyota’s upcoming Lexus LXs.

Governments of various countries are coming up with various stringent regulations for vehicles and vehicle manufacturers. As a result, tire manufacturers adopt environment-friendly raw materials without compromising on lighter tires, which significantly reduces vehicle weight, providing higher fuel efficiency and less consumption. All advantages of green tires will propel the demand for green tires in the market.

Minimizing carbon emissions is one of the utmost priorities of countries across the globe. In the wake of this, prominent countries are framing regulations to reduce carbon emissions. For instance,

In June 2022, The Bureau of Energy Efficiency, India, launched the Star Labeling Program for tires, similar to the rating we often see for electrical appliances. The rating of the tire gives information about rolling resistance and possible fuel economy.

Considering the developments between OEM and tire manufacturers, demand for OEM tires is expected to remain positive during the forecast period.
